Geeta Iyengar has inherited the gift of Yoga from her distinguished father Shri B.K.S. Iyengar, who is a Yoga exponent of world repute, known for his vast knowledge of the subject and his performing skills. She has been teaching Yoga since 1962 in Pune. A graduate in Philosophy and Vaidya Visharad, her knowledge of Ayurveda blended with her knowledge of Yoga, makes her an expert guide for students. She is one of the partners of the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute. Geeta Iyengar has travelled extensively to propagate Yoga in India and abroad. She has also written widely on the subject and thus occupies a distinguished place in a field where few women have achieved proficiency. This authoritative book on Yoga for women has been translated into more than half a dozen European languages.
